Wow…. Christmas has really ninja’d me this year, I’m left working till the end of the year and not having finished any of my gift shopping. Oi-vey!
If you’re expecting a gift from me this season, don’t be surprised if you get an I.O.U. … but then, if you’re a friend or relative of mine, you probably know me well enough that you don’t need that warning, do you?
I’d like to wish everyone a happy festive season and urge you to experience the holiday in it’s true meaning. So instead of spending all of your time stressing about presents, family politics or getting the house ‘just right’ for visitors: take a step back and enjoy being with your family and friends. You can’t have quality time with someone if your mind is a thousand miles away running through a department store trying to get those last minute presents.

Happy holidays everyone…. have fun, but be smart! Don’t drink and drive and watch yourselves on the road… I insist that you all are alive next year to keep reading this blog… so if you get yourself killed, I’ll never talk to you again!
